Heroes of Feminism and adventures in wet felting. Create sisterhood, dialogue and some seriously fierce-some fiber art!
Inspired by Bonnie Burton’s feminist finger puppets, we will be creating our very own felted versions with fiber artist Tami Selph of Blubird Studio. You’ll start by wet felting the puppet figure and then add fun accoutrements. You will learn about wet felting and needle felting techniques in the process AND come together with other women in an inspiring environment!
Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages – no experience necessary!
Materials: All supplies are included.
Instructor: Tami Selph of Blubird Studio
